Can't You Read The Signs? (Episode #104H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Feb 12, 2015 -- 7:30 PM

Desmond is the man with one leg and one name. He is also the man with the world's premier neon sign collection, which includes pieces from the 1940s right up to today's beer and soft drink signs. Pepsi Cola, Hires Root Beer, and 7Up are just a few of the great brands featured. Desmond's sign collection is so massive he rents a giant facility to house them, but it's time to downsize. Now, a large segment of Desmond's unique collection makes their way to Penn Auctions in anticipation of top dollar bids.

Whatever Floats Your Boat (Episode #103H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Feb 5, 2015 -- 7:30 PM

Paul Mikkelson collects anything that has to do with classic and antique boats, motors, and items from boating history. Several of his boats and motors are the last surviving examples known to exist, and all are rare. From the Boondoggle, reputed to be the only single cockpit inboard Larson Falls Flyer Speedster ever built, to more than 500 vintage toy boats, Paul has loved and collected it all. His lifetime love of boats, however, is now about to sink under the financial pressures of a wife who's been in a care center for 40 years and other business ventures in need of cash investment.
